Orodromeus

About Orodromeus

Compared to other dinosaurs, Orodromeus was rather small. It was only 10 feet (3m) in length. Like other members of the ornithopoda group, Orodromeus had a toothless beak that it used for cutting vegetation. Within its mouth, Orodromeus had a set of teeth used for crushing and grinding food before swallowing. The name Orodromeus means "Mountain Jumper." Like modern day mountain sheep, this dinosaur probably spent its life leaping about from rock to rock foraging for food.
